    Dunno if it's OK to make a thread for these FRM edits. :oops:

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    AK-112M. I tried to make the AK-112 assault rifle look closer to a real-life AK rifle, so I modified the barrel a bit and added a gas tube over it. The result looks somewhat like an AK-105 carbine.



    AK-112M (Long Barrel). My second attempt to make AK-112 look like a real-life AK rifle. I extended the barrel and edited the gas tube on my AK-112M. Now it looks more like an AK-74, or the rifle which the female hero is holding in one of FO1 concept arts.



    AKS-112U. Yup, an AKS-74U or "Krinkov" type of modification, obviously.



    Yet another variation of my AK-112M, a mix of my AKS-112U and Long Barrel.

    Download all AK-112 variations above.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    A battle rifle of some sort, original concept from Tagaziel's Fallout 2 canon tuning thread. Basically it's just an XL70E3 changed from the bullpup layout to a conventional one. I also added green & orange color lens for the scope, shortened the barrel, and extend the magazine a bit.

    Download Battle Rifle.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ___
    Fallout 2 canon tuning weapon: MAC-27. The replacement for M3A1 "Grease Gun" SMG. Tagaziel's FRM (left) is a tad too compact for my taste, so I made my own variation. I keep the cylindrical look of the front of the receiver and give it an extended magazine.

    Download MAC-27.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ___
    Fallout 2 canon tuning weapon: H&K MP10. The replacement for H&K P90c. Tagaziel's FRM (left) is a bit plain for my taste, so I mixed different parts of x'il's variations to make a more colorful two-tone version.

    Download H&K MP10.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ___
    I tried to add an extended magazine to the hunting rifle. In order not to make the gun look awkward, I removed the strings at the front of the receiver. Later on I made some attempts to clear all the strings for a cleaned/fully repaired hunting rifle.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    A double-barreled Pipe Rifle. I got the idea after watching James Bond using a double rifle in Skyfall.
    I think it might be a good idea to improve the pipe rifle a bit, to make players more willing to use it in the early stage of the game.

    Download Double-barreled Pipe Rifle.

    My edit:


    Terbitator released a compilation of all weapons he made for EC: Paris in 2011, but the colors didn't completely match Fallout palette. Pixote kindly helped me convert the image with minimal loss of details. I darkened the magazine to prevent it from blending in the background of active item slot, and added scopes with green & orange color lens and a longer barrel.

    Download Terbitator's EC: Paris Unnamed SMG/Carbine.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    I found the ripped "Fallout 1/2 Armory" Totemic Sanctuary website in one of my old backup HDDs. =Totem= made a GIF image for Zip Gun as a suggestion. It uses a modified 14mm Pistol grip and trigger with a shortened Pipe Rifle barrel. I patched up the back end of the barrel and edited the markings on it a bit.

    Download =Totem='s Zip Gun.

    Awesome job. I think I recognize your name from Half life modding sites NovaRain.


    The description for the assault rifle of Fallout 1 and 2 calls it the AK-112.

    So, how does this work in-game? I mean, if these are sprites only for someone to add them to a new weapon or will it simply replace the old one?

    *EDIT* Awesome work BTW.

    I made and released the sprites as modding materials. I was originally planning to make a simple weapon mod but later dropped the idea.

    @Everybody
    Thanks for the comments, guys! :D

    Especially the AK 115. Very fallout for me. Good job!

    Sorry for the necro bump, but I've updated all my old FRM edits (AK-112s & G89s) and added some new ones (MAC-27 & MP10 & unnamed rifle) in the first post.
    I'd like to know what people think of them, or if anyone could give me some opinions or suggestions of my AKS-112U WIP. :)

    I am still a big fan of your art, specially the AK 112s and the mac.
    Concerning the last addition, I am not sure this rifle is appropriate for an automatic, it always will be the hunting rifle for me. Can you maybe transform the wood into plastic (black)? Just to check? :D

    The hunting rifle could really use getting rid of the damn strings, at least for the scoped version. Suppose you've gone through the trouble of paying $1000 (was it?) to get the scope attached and they couldn't do anything about the strings holding the whole thing together? tsk tsk tsk

    On topic: Great work, NovaRain, they all look really nice. 2 small aesthetic comments:

    1) The long AK looks a bit too long for the perspective to work - the end of the barrel should look wider (it's pointed slightly towards you)

    2) Could you try what the H&K would look like with a little bit less blue and more silver/metallic colour? I never liked that tint - looks a bit like a toy.

    I like the H&K and automatic rifle stuff. Guess I will try to add it into my mod somehow. But I don't want to over do stuff with too many weapons, which aren't really needed in the end.

    Hmm, I don't know if this is what you want. I only gray-colored the handguard (extremely cheap solution) and tried to clean the strings a bit, but the WIP doesn't look good... I'll try other edits later. :oops:


    Yes, I noticed this while I was hacking it at the first time. I've already tried to shorten its total length. If I want to try shortening it further, I would probably just scrap it and use the alternative ver. (the one I made at the first place) instead.
    I can't find a way to widen the front barrel and make it look nice at the same time (many times it just looks awful), so I gave up and kept it as it is. Honestly I'm not good at artistic works. :(

    I think I'll need some help for this, just a color change for the little lens of G89X can take me few hours(!). (Seriously, like I said above.)
    Personally I'm fine with its color, just don't buy the "XL70E3" idea.

    @Lexx
    I know. It would be way too redundant to add all the stuff into the game. The whole AK-112 family idea is simply because I'm an AK lover. :P
    Others are because I like Tagaziel's FO2 canon tuning idea and trying to contribute something.


    Uh, so no one likes to comment the AK shorties? :lalala:

    I'd be willing to help with color changes and/or simple edits if you'd like, I have some decent graphics experience...I'm just new to the Fallout modding scene and therefore don't know if I just need to edit the images you posted or if there is more. Whatever the case I'm sure I can help and I'd like to at least try. :) I'm going to go look for some tutorials/information on this subject in the mean time.

    Pretty cool stuff, once again. Love the new weapon looks. Except maybe the H&K P90c, but I never liked that kind of weapon/design for fallout. The automatic rifle is superb.

    Re: [WIP] My weapon FRM edits

    good stuff i love it :)

    in FO weapon condition do not deteriorate, so its possible to double the amount of available weapons simply by doing the opposite, making a tattered versions that has lower stats.


    one of the good thing about FPS that you must have good weapons models, so here is FO3 H&K P90c

    btw i never shot a weapon with such a feeder, interesting how it works...

    and the rest of the FO3 models

    i think they went after the FO:T H&K P90c style

    wow, they all look great! The pistol type looks pretty interesting.
    The first 'wacky' one reminds me the MP7 of Half-Life 2.... :P
